Jamaican residents create an original design of a craft item that demonstrates originality, creativity, potential for production and income.
Alongside the Creative Industries Conference (November 2013), the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office in association with the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment, is hosting a Design Competition aimed at participants in the craft industry. This competition will not only foster creativity but will focus on the linkage between intellectual property protection and the industries’ business structure and practices.
The designs should portray craft and design products which appeal to local and overseas buyers. They should symbolize quality, time-honoured traditions of creation, use of indigenous materials (where possible/sustainable) and encompass connections to Jamaica’s rich culture and history. This requirement supports the objective of identifying uniquely Jamaican items, which will highlight the creativity and pride of our nation and people.
